Wavefront Technology: How It Has Improved LASIK
Who is a Candidate for Wavefront?
Most people who are candidates for conventional LASIK are also candidates for wavefront-guided LASIK. Should everyone have a wavefront analysis, especially in light of the fact that it may involve an additional cost and some individuals may get an excellent result with conventional LASIK? Many eye doctors recommend it to all patients who are candidates, because the evidence is that, on average, it produces better vision than conventional treatment for all patients.
Individuals who have problems with image contrast or night vision while wearing their glasses or contacts may be especially interested in wavefront technology, because it can be effective in treating these visual errors.
Some patients who have already undergone an eye treatment may also be candidates; see the section on "Therapeutic Wavefront-Guided Retreatment."Who is Not a Candidate for Wavefront? »
